Hotel Jakarta again nominated: BNA Best Building
The nominees for the BNA Best Building 2019 election are known. The professional jury selected 14 projects from 114 submissions. After a round of judging by the Netherlands, 9 nominated buildings remained. The winner will be announced on 17 May.
This 14th edition of the election is led by a six-member professional jury with Jort Kelder as chairman of the jury. They assess the buildings in the categories Identity & Icon value, Livability & Social Cohesion, Stimulating Environments and Private Living Experience.
The jury, which consists of Jens Kelder and Renske van der Stoep, Ferdi Licher, Bianca Seekles, Jeroen van Schooten and Chantal Schoenmakers, will (from now on) also look at accessibility: buildings where people without and with a disability cannot only enter barrier-free , but where the user, resident and visitor can do all the activities for which the building was designed.
With the Best Building Election, the BNA (Association of Dutch Architects' Offices) wants to make visible the added value of architecture for people and society. The price is therefore primarily intended for clients and users.
You can vote until 1 May.
